Do you really think they paid Lien and Ryan the same amount of money considering they planned on making Ryan work about 10 times harder? If they did, if Lien got paid Jeri Ryan money to say two or three lines most episodes, that tiny child was an evil sexy genius.
Double at least, surely?
Besides I was stressing lines/time being more intensive than money paid for said work. Remember, it doesn't matter what they do in an episode of Voyager, the cast always gets paid the same, even if all they do is walk through the background and cough audibly.
Jeri was taking scripts and air time on screen from the rest.
